Let's all give Cosmopolitan a slowclap for fauxminism.
Cosmo sat down to interview Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo for Avengers: Age of Ultron and decided to flip how these interviews usually go by hitting Ruffalo with all the questions about looks and hair and makeup etc. while asking Johansson about her character and her stunts. And Johansson loved it.
To be fair to Ruffalo, he played along and seemed to have a bit of fun with it too. But who was the joke on? Us mostly.
It's a bit rich that a magazine that holds up gender stereotypes and impossible beauty standards for women tries to claim that it's fighting the good fight for women and equality by throwing the typical sexist questions that are usually fired at Scarlett Johansson at Mark Ruffalo. What this is all about is eyes on them, not the issue. But hey, that's the internet yo.
